My main feedback is that I prefer not adding a new element but reusing a new
value type for the existing size attribute. Ie. the fonts with this new info
will have their size attribute reflect a range. Then define the compare
function for a double and a range to the minimum distance from the double to a
member of the range (and define the distance between two ranges similarly). I
would also keep the Double out of the name. Just use Range.
HTH, and thanks for the work,
